Over the past year, a series of Dublin’s Culture Connects: The National Neighbourhood projects has connected Dubliners to their communities, to artists, and to cultural institutions and the cultural resources of their city. We’ve seen villages come alive with all sorts of activities and creative outcomes, from musicals to morse code messages, and from hakas to hip hop gigs in people’s homes. Seeking real change in the city by creating projects with communities that are relevant to them – based on their own stories, wishes and experiences.
Dublin’s Culture Connects is an initiative of Dublin City Council partnering the Area Offices of each of the five administrative regions, with Dublin City Public Libraries and Archives, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, and the City Arts Office with the Dublin-based National Cultural Institutions – The Abbey Theatre, The National Museum of Ireland, The National Library of Ireland, The National Gallery of Ireland, The National Concert Hall, The Chester Beatty Library, The National Archives and The Irish Museum of Modern Art.
In 2017 and early 2018, 5 individual cultural initiatives/projects will be developed as part of The National Neighbourhood, through continued wide-reaching conversations with citizens and stakeholders. Connection and consultation with individuals and community groupings is the starting point for project research and development, and these engagement programmes have already begun and will continue throughout, supported by the Engagement Team of Dublin’s Culture Connects. A support structure via an Advisory Group will be set up in each Area to debate and discuss possible ideas, projects and programmes, before a final decision is made on what pilot event/programme/project is realised.
Dublin’s Culture Connects seeks Project Managers from July 2017 to March 2018 on a part-time basis, for these new cultural projects to be developed within existing partnerships as well as connecting with new partners, as is relevant, connecting the interests of audiences and communities in a way that is developmental, authentic and meaningful for both, with artists, the cultural services of Dublin City Council and the National Cultural Institutions partnered with the project area.
